New Horizons images of Arrokoth show building blocks for planets

Arrokoth is about 1 billion miles beyond Pluto

NASA’s New Horizons spacecraft zoomed past a city-sized object just over a year ago. The most distant object ever explored, since named Arrokoth, was a “planetesimal” lurking quietly in the outer solar system a billion miles past Pluto. The spacecraft beamed back images of what looked like two lumpy, reddish snowballs, one larger than the other, gently pressed together to form an extraterrestrial snowperson.

On Thursday the New Horizons scientists published their full analysis and high-resolution images of Arrokoth in three voluminous reports in the journal Science. They contend this quirky object provides compelling evidence for how planets in our solar system, including Earth, formed four and a half billion years ago from a primordial cloud of dust. The reports suggest planet formation is not as violent and chaotic a process as once assumed.

Scientists detect an unexplainable radio signal from outer space that repeats every 16 days

Outer space signal detected

For the first time, scientists have detected a radio signal from outer space that repeats at regular intervals.

The series of so-called "fast radio bursts" – which are very short-lived pulses of radio waves that come from across the universe – were detected approximately once an hour for four days and then suddenly stopped, only to start up again 12 days later.

This cycle repeated every 16.35 days for over a year, according to a new paper about the research.

The bursts originated from a distant galaxy some 500 million light-years away.

NASA astronaut Christina Koch returns to Earth after record mission

Christina Koch, astronautAmerican astronaut Christina Koch, who led the first all-female spacewalk in 2019, landed in Kazakhstan on Thursday after a record stay on the International Space Station, ending a 328-day mission expected to yield new insights into deep-space travel.

Koch, a North Carolina-born engineer who joined NASA’s astronaut corps in 2013, set the record for the longest stay in space by a woman. Her mission will provide researchers valuable data on how weightlessness and space radiation affect the female body on long spaceflights.

“Women acclimate well to space, so I think this is a milestone that will be overtaken by women in the future and it’s what we aspire to,” said Lori Garver, NASA’s former deputy administrator.

Scientists discover Earth’s oldest solid material – stardust older than the sun

Meteorite

Scientists have discovered the oldest solid material ever found on Earth from a meteorite that fell in Australia about 50 years ago.

The material that the researchers examined are called presolar grains – or stardust – particles from a star that can eventually form new stars, along with planets, moons and meteorites.

The truth about the pug 'X-ray' that went viral - and why it's a reminder of the damage done to dogs by human breeding

Pug X-Ray picture

A striking MRI scan of a pug’s head which has charmed sections of the internet is actually a reminder of the problems the dogs suffer from because of human breeding, a leading vet has said.

A tweet showing the black and white image of the pug went viral this week, garnering almost 130,000 likes.

The picture is dominated by the pug’s huge bulging eyes, while the animal almost seems to have a quizzical expression.

Many of those commenting on and sharing the image described it as adorable and cute, but Rory Cowlam, a vet based in London, said it was actually concerning.

Boeing Starliner Launches Into Wrong Orbit After Clock Problem

Starliner launches into wrong orbit

As an Atlas 5 rocket arced upward into the pre-dawn sky from Cape Canaveral in Florida on Friday morning, NASA’s plans to finally break free of its reliance on Russian rockets for taking astronauts to orbit seemed to be on track.

On top of the rocket was Starliner, a capsule built by Boeing, part of a NASA strategy to delegate to private companies to handle the astronaut transportation.

Half an hour later, something went wrong, signaling that NASA would again face a setback to its goal of renewing human spaceflight to orbit from the United States.

Monster black hole that is so big it 'should not even exist' was discovered

monster black holeA black hole with a mass 70 times greater than the Sun was discovered, leaving scientists stunned.

"Black holes of such mass should not even exist in our Galaxy, according to most of the current models of stellar evolution," Professor Jifeng Liu, who led the team at the Chinese Academy of Sciences that made the discovery, said in a statement.

Scientists previously believed that the mass of an individual stellar black hole could not be more than 20 times that of the Sun. These stellar black holes are different than so-called supermassive black holes, which are found at the center of galaxies and can be billions of times the mass of our Sun.
